Homeowner Jim Huggins tried to remain in the background as the CASA Christmas Tour of Homes visitors enjoyed his wife's holiday decorations inside the home and in her portion of their massive garage/shop space. But he soon found his massive garage and his hobby of rebuilding cars receiving lots of attention, too, even though space and vehicles were not decorated for Christmas.
